As spring approaches with the promise of new growth and lighter days and as winter's grip loses her hold you may well be starting to think about spring cleaning your life. A few people I know are making big changes in their love relationships including some that are ending because they feel they can't communicate anymore and the lack of being able to speak the same "language" has brought forth ....adios....farewell ..next!

How Do You Know You Are Loved?

We all work in different ways, we are all programmed differently.  If you don't share with your partner what it is that makes you feel loved how can they give it to you?

Nobody’s Hero

When I was training all those years ago, the Rush song ‘Nobody’s Hero’ was played daily.

Although I’m taking the lyrics in a different context, these ones strike me as useful for us to remember in any relationship – be it personal or business.
